Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has blasted her engagement with Ricky Rayment, admitting it's the 'biggest mistake she has ever made in her life.'


Fans of Geordie Shore watched Ricky propose to Marnie during series eleven of the show, but just months later the couple decided to split. Now looking back on their relationship, Marnie has revealed: "It all went downhill."

Speaking to MTV recently, Marnie said: "I got engaged... and then it all went downhill. I would go as far to say it was probably the biggest mistake I've ever made in my life."

"Only because I feel like [Ricky] was full of sh*t," she continued. "He did it for one reason only and that was to get me off Geordie Shore."

Following rumours of trouble between them, Marnie confirmed she and Ricky had called off their engagement in September last year. She told fans an 'important chapter' in her life had ended and she was moving on.

Fast forward five months, and Marnie now insists her feelings for the former TOWIE star have gone.

"I'm so over Ricky," she claimed. "There is totally nothing there anymore. I still have this really ugly tattoo... that definitely has to go."

While the pair were dating, Ricky had an 'M' etched onto his skin in tribute to Marnie and she did the same, having an 'R' tattooed onto her wrist.

She has since called on Tattoo Fixers' Jay Hutton to help her cover it up and recently joked: "I think I might have to replace it with Aaron [Chalmer's] name."

We can't see Ricky being too happy about that!

Aaron and Marnie have enjoyed an on/off fling since starring on Geordie Shore together. Think Charlotte Crosby and Gary Beadle's relationship, but not as intense.

Shortly after her split with Ricky, Marnie was seen kissing Aaron and, at the time, Ricky had cryptically tweeted: "That what happens when you think u can trust your pals with your code! #donttrustanyone."

Marnie has since posted several snaps with Aaron to her Instagram, sparking romance rumours between the pair.

Ricky, meanwhile, has already had his 'M' tattoo covered up and replaced it with a huge design featuring supermodel Gigi Hadid.

Sharing her thoughts on her ex-fiancé's new ink, Marnie said: "I'm surprised Ricky didn't get his [tattoo] removed earlier than he did. He's picked a good-looking girl to get it covered over with... I mean it's Gigi. She is unreal."
